Stress Free Work Environment #101

Its my 6th month working with my new boss. Really like working with her because she is so chill and doesn’t allow negativity in the office.

no negativity

I have always been a bit sexist towards my own gender and I have always steer away from working with a lady boss. But now, I can truly say that one’s attitude is not related to one’s gender.


I, too, struggled with work depression and had reached a point where suicidal thoughts were as normal as any other daily thoughts. Then I changed my job.

THE ONLY thing that is depressing with my new job is how my boss can maintain a nice figure at the age of 40ish. That is a life goal.

These are the things that I do to handle work stress that you might find to be useful to cope with work stress:

  • Whenever you caught yourself in a stressful situation, just laugh it off.


  • Calm down and make the best out of the situation at hand – panic causes more stress


  • Ask directions from your boss for a clearer picture of the instructions – more focus!


  • Ask help from friends – Yeap. At least on the rough idea of the work that you’re doing

ineed help

  • Discuss the issues with your boss/ colleagues – that’s how your idea grows

we need to talk

  • Have a to-do list or an update list – especially for lawyers. Remember all the penalties?


  • Avoid doing your work at the 11th hour – it causes panic and adding up to the stress


  • Have a life – success in nothing if you don’t have anyone to celebrate with

get a life


Have a nice day 🙂

So recently we have to advise our client whether his employee falls under the Employment Act 1955 (“EA”) or not. If the employee falls under EA, the employee will be entitled to the benefits under the EA.

You can check First Schedule of the EA here for details.

Boss asked me to check the Jabatan Tenaga Kerja (“JTK”) across our office. So I went there. Waited for 5 minutes and a lady gave me Job Application Form.

She thought I am a job seeker.

It turns out that they are not Jabatan Tenaga Kerja branch or anything. The logo outside their premise is merely marketing strategy to say that they are authorised to do working permits for foreign workers.

Ok. Back to work then.
